The Emmys are undoubtedly the biggest night in television - but the American TV awards are also one of the most dazzling nights on the fashion calendar, with stars of the small screen ensuring their outfits are worthy of all the trophies.

Thankfully, this year’s ceremony - which was hosted in LA but had a celebration in London, too – did not disappoint, with a line-up which included Kate Winslet, Michaela Coel, Anya Taylor-Joy, Beanie Feldstein, Sarah Paulson.

The event followed hot on the heels of last week's Met Gala, meaning we've enjoyed a real fashion parade after over a year of limited red carpets. It also happens to be London Fashion Week, so it looks like things really are (almost) back to normal.

In terms of designers chosen, Michaela Coel – one of the night's winners – chose an incredible ensemble from Christopher John Rogers, while Anya Taylor-Joy wore Dior Haute Couture. Gillian Anderson was another of the best dressed stars in a custom Chloé look and Sarah Paulson looked typically amazing in bright red Carolina Herrera. Oh, and Emma Corrinin Miu Miu was a moment.
